Wavemaker is an awesome product !!!!!!

What do you like best?

Wavemaker has evolved since its birth to become a solid platform for development. Its flexibility is outstanding but what makes it really awesome is how it speeds up the development lifecycle. There is a learning curve to get started. But if you already know how to code in Java and Javascript then you only need to learn how Wavemaker binds things together. I recently started using WAVELens and was absolutely blown away .......it is just incredible. I can now make changes to my Hybrid mobile application and immediately test them on my device. No need to compile an apk file which I then have to download and then upload to the device AND then upload the test website. The changes are instant!!!!!

I only have to refresh the WAVELens app on my device and boom............its there ready for testing with all the usual console output. Its simply incredible. Oh and did I mention the support >?? It is well above the bar. They really treat you and your application with very careful attention. They are an incredible team.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I really disliked has been fixed by WAVELens......what else can I say.

Wavemake is by far the best development platform no matter how it is compared.

What do you like best?

Ease of use. Reduction of many third party and add-on software such as DB schema and management tools, security, roles, permissions, aesthetics and theme, API connectors, and so much more. The most important area is the use Java without having to get stuck with boilerplate, and verbose code. Wavemaker reduces code writing by more than 80%.

Deployment is across the board to web, and mobile (iOS, Android). No other platform gives this much. The role of Java is very important as it has widely available libraries, and has matured to become very stable. Other languages have not matured or adopted to the level of Java.

For us, the decision was to move away from module and depencies often associated with WordPress, Drupal and other popular platforms. In addition, .NET and ,many others do not have an IDE that reduces code writing. In order to save time and work within budget we needed a RAD tool to make the deadline. This was only possible with Wavemaker.

The vast number of Java libraries made it seamless to integrate Wavemaker to AWS, CloudFront for our video sharing project. Wavemaker is a vast tool beyond the scope of this review. Try it yourself and see how much time can be saved.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike about Wavemaker. Initially the price was a hurdle, but since then Wavemaker has made is affordable for such a great product.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Highly recommended!!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are solving the problem of connecting to Amazon Web Services and Cloudfront without having to be tied up to modules and plugins of open source projects.

Wavemaker rocks!

What do you like best?

Wavemaker enables us to do much more with fewer headcount and generates pristine code and interface with drag and drop;

We are in an age where we are not isolated programmers anymore, we work in communities and groups that transcend organizational borders; Wavemaker proves it true when renders us a fantastic customer care support that helps us to harvest the most from the tool in a very reduced time span.

At the end, Wavemaker delivers what it claims: the generated code does follow best practices and ultimately enforces ourselves to follow these practices.

What do you dislike?

Debugging documentation needs improvement so we could rely less on customer support, but I'm sure this is something Wavemaker will fulfill soon and gracefully.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We took advantage of already knowing some ancillary frameworks adopted by Wavemaker so, it was also encouraged us adopting Wavemaker. Although not so necessary at first glance, The learning cost for mastering such frameworks should be considered.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are developing a mission critical application in the competitive analysis arena. Wavemaker is our workbench of choice to accomplish that.

Best RAD environment ever worked!

What do you like best?

WaveMaker is a very easy to use RAD environment, with a lot of handful and professional features.

The best thing, it does offer a very clean interface, and deployed apps just work perfectly!

We can develop applications very fast and make it available to our users on the fly.

What do you dislike?

None at all. We are very satisfied with the features WaveMaker offers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend WaveMaker because it is a very easy to use and very completed RAD solution. You just build the apps very fast.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to build from very small apps to more complex ones, that facilitate our employees daily work.

Also, WaveMaker offers powerful security level features for the applications you build, and very easy to use.

Great speed on development

What do you like best?

Integration with backend rest and database is what we are looking for. We don't need anymore software installation at customer site.

In two months we have completed and delivered custom development projects for our customers. With visual studio we could not have such a speed.

The ability to export the webapp in WAR format, allows those who have already an internal J2EE infrastructure, to start immediately with the developed webapp in minutes.

The support with the chat is very good, fast and reliable...

What do you dislike?

The store procedure editor could be better...

Recommendations to others considering the product

I reccomend other to use Wm because they did not have to install nothing....

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

My small company did not develop custom software because the webapp were difficult and long. Now we can bring quick results, with responsive webapp, developed for on all devices and intergrated with the rest and sql database....bees ....
